Transcranial magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound thalamotomy as a safe treatment option in multiple sclerosis patients with essential tremor
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33094429/

Abstract

Transcranial magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound is a recently introduced incisionless treating option for essential tremor and tremor-dominant idiopathic Parkinson disease. There is preliminary evidence that it may result in a promising effective treatment option for other movement disorders too. Here, we report on two patients with multiple sclerosis with medication refractory debilitating essential tremor comorbidity who successfully underwent unilateral Vim tcMRgFUS thalamotomy for tremor control. Patients' clinical condition and expanded disability status scale scores showed no changes during the 1-year follow-up period with no evidence of multiple sclerosis activity or progression.
